The authors of the Letter to the Editor have reinvestigated the Danilovskaya’s problem (DP) in the context of TRDTE. They have suggested some correction terms to the expressions (5.58) and (5.61) of [1]. They have also obtained small-time solutions for the displacement and strain fields, which were not reported in [1]. Their analysis brings out the fact that some physically unrealistic features of TRDTE (summarized in [2]) can be seen in DP as well.

But for the unnecessarily aggressive language, repetitive statements, and undue length, the letter makes a useful contribution to the literature on TRDTE. I am thankful to the authors of the letter for correcting a couple of mathematical expressions which I had derived some 20 years back.

I am moved by their overall opinion on my two Review Articles [1,2].
